Winning garden design

This has been a huge boost to my career so far and has allowed me to build upon the success I have had to date since leaving LCGD

London College of Garden Design (LCGD) Graduates have triumphed once again at two of the big summer shows.

Will Williams won a Silver Gilt Medal at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for ‘Streetscape’s Holding Back the Flood’ a striking representation of the actions of Pickering to reduce any recurrence of recent flooding where trees have been planted to slow water run-off after heavy rainfall. Will said “I’ve had a huge reaction to the garden with people interested in what they can do to help by planting trees, especially Alders, alongside water courses. I’m delighted by the response.’

Tom Massey also won a Silver Gilt medal at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for the Perennial Sanctuary Garden with spiral paths through colourful planting combinations that led to a calm central space away from the outside world.

At RHS Tatton Park Flower Show Lara Behr has won a Gold medal and the Best Back-to-back garden with her Macmillan Legacy Garden garden, a place of reflection, inspired by the work of the charity and all those involved in continuing their work. The garden referenced the charity’s founder and the work made possible by legacy donations. Lara said ‘This has been a huge boost to my career so far and has allowed me to build upon the success I have had to date since leaving LCGD.’

Many of the College’s tutors take part in the main flower shows with James Basson, Kate Gould, Andrew Fisher Tomlin, Adam White and Andrew Wilson all winning Gold Medals in 2017.
